We have organized cancer awareness and screening program in Salipeta slum, Srikalahasti, India. By attending cancer awareness camps women and adolescent girls in slums are aware of different cancers and they are approaching STEPS Health center for initial screening.
One of the beneficiary aged about 45 years staying in slipeta slum. She used to get chest pain frequently. Even though she had taken treatment the pain was not cured. She attended Cancer awareness camp organized by STEPS NGO. She approached STEPS Health centre for the advice. After initial examination & screening, she was referred to Tirupati for further tests and Mammogram test. Test result showed that she have a tumor in the initial stages. She was prescribed medicines. She said” After the treatment, now I am not getting pain and the tumor is completely cured. I am very much thankful to Donors for supporting this program through Global Giving and STEPS NGO for implementing the program.”
